Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review

Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review


In February 2018, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, the Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP, announced a review into how the health system responds to reports from patients about harmful side effects from medicines and medical devices.

The announcement follows patient-led campaigns on the use of the hormone pregnancy test Primodos, anti-epileptic drug sodium valproate and surgical mesh. 

If you have personal experiences arising from any of the above, an independent review, commissioned by the Government, wants to hear from you.

The independent review website here will be updated with information as the Review goes about its work.
